265 million posts on facebook. the game the tale of two amazing plays and one really bad play call. tonight, how seattle's coach is defending those final moments. here's abc's ryan smith. >> reporter: in a super bowl clash of the titans today, all eyes on two unforgettable catches, the first, with just over a minute to go. the seattle seahawks trailing by four now watch wide receiver jermaine kearse. watch again. kearse goes up tips the ball bobbling it one, two, three, four five times before making the catch of a lifetime. patriots quarterback tom brady, dumbfounded. but then -- just 30 seconds later, with the game on the line a game-changing interception by rookie malcolm butler waning it for the patriots and breaking the hearts of the seahawk faithful. richard sherman's face saying it all. today, scorn for the seahawks coach pete carroll for calling that play. >> that's a play that's supposed to work versus the two guys
covering one-on-one. >> reporter: and that guy? malcolm butler who once worked at this mississippi pop eyes -- >> we're going to disneyland! >> reporter: well he's celebrating tonight, and getting some love from the super bowl mvp. >> it was the perfect play at the perfect time. proud of him. proud of our team. and, you know, it's a great victory. >> we were all watching that fight last night, thinking is this how it's all going to end? but there were some redeeming moments. >> reporter: richard sherman, after the game they was one of the first seahawks to walk up to brady and shake his hand. >> ryan smith, thank you. and before we move on from the super bowl tonight, one more question about that moment that call. let's get right to our colleague, espn's jesse palmer former quarterback in the nfl himself. he's in phoenix for us. folks still stunned over this moment. you have marshawn lynch, seattle, 36 inches from another super bowl victory. instead, they attempt to pass. rookie malcolm butler intercepting it. so bottom line tonight, jesse, is this the worst play call in super bowl history? >> you know david, a lot of
super bowls played before i was born but that was the worst play call i've ever seen in a super bowl. on the 1 yard line. a time-out in your back pocket. you've got marshawn lynch, arguably the best short yardage goal line running back in the entire nfl. you have to hand that football off. no doubt about it. that is a play call that is going to haunt him for a very long time. >> we talked a lot these last couple weeks about tom brady and deflate gate. did he prove anything last night? >> i think tom brady at least proved he's one of the two all-time great quarterbacks in the nfl. it's debatable if it's him or joe montana. that performance was the best super bowl game i've seen him play. in his accuracy was outstanding. his poise was uncanny. he delivered in the critical moments. that was his fourth game-winning drive in a super bowl. as a former quarterback, david, i marvel when i watch him take the people. >> jesse, good luck.
i know you are headed to the airport to come back east. it is not pretty. >> thanks. >> safe trip back indeed. jesse, thank you. and now to washington tonight. president obama unveiling his $4 trillion budget today. the spending plan includes tax hikes for the wealthy, tax credits for the middle class. more money for the military. republicans angry tonight about the tax increases up to $2 trillion worth. tonight, to something else. millions of americans were watching this weekend, other than the super bowl. the movie "american sniper." tops again this weekend. and this evening in texas, they are remembering him. as we now hear from his widow on the one thing he said she never understood. here's abc's byron pitts. >> reporter: today, in texas, it was officially declared chris kyle dade. come men rating the real american sniper. his wife speaking out. >> he was just incredible. >> reporter: portrayed by sienna miller in the movie that's made $250 million at the box office. taya wants the world to know theirs is not just the story about war --
